I am completely in love with this new Retro bus set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It is so easy to assemble and that makes it a joy to work with!
Step 1: Die cut all the pieces you need out of the cardstock.
Step 2: I used cardstock with a colored core. Using a sanding block, I distressed the paper exposing the lighter core.
Step 3: Using Distress ink Frayed Burlap to lightly color the edges of the main parts. This not only gives it a vintage look but also helps to create depth. Always remember: light brings forward, dark creates depth.
Step 4: Distress the metallic parts with a sanding block and give it a rusty look using a rose gold gilding wax.
Step 5: assemble the cover page in this order: base page, base layer, cover layer, insert windows if you made these, add tires and finish with bumper, head lights, mirrors and other embellishments.
I hope you give this fantastic set a go and enjoy it as much as I did. Thank you for reading my process.

This set is so versatile, you can use it to make cards, in a journal, planner or as i did here as a mini booklet. Even the rings are included.
